Belnorth Newsletter: No U5-U9 games this week, Female Football Week, Photos

Not Playing for Sheep Stations

Unfortunately, we have had reports of parents and spectators behaving badly at games. We’d like to remind everyone that football is a game to be played and refereed in a fun and safe environment.

Grown adults yelling at playersreferees and game leaders is not acceptable!

Playersreferees and game leaders are all learning and doing their best. Being berated from the sidelines isn’t going to foster this learning. It will only intimidate young children and turn them off the sport.

If you know you could behave better on the sidelines and want to learn how check out Play By The Rules and their Let Kids be Kids resources.

No U5-U9 and Senior Rounds this weekend

With the long weekend, there will be no U5 to U9 games this Saturday, 27/5/2023. Enjoy the sleep in!

Most Senior teams also have the weekend off, except some teams that are playing catch-up games. U10 to U18 teams still have games scheduled.

Junior Team Photos

Junior Team Photos this season will be conducted at The Clubhouse Kaleen by Michael Thompson Photography (MTP), over two Friday afternoon/evenings, the 16/6 and 23/6. Photo session times will be shared when finalised.

The Clubhouse Kaleen is a good place to tuck into meal after or before the photo sessions and for that matter after a game on the weekend.

Registrars will confirm team lists with team managers/coaches along with asking if anyone wishes to opt-out of team photos.

If you don’t wish your child to be involved with the photos or your details provided to Michael Thompson Photography, please email MTP’s privacy policy is available here.
